Hell yeah mate, looks sweet as! !!
What snorkel are you using?
Manual or auto?
Do you have a 50x50mm rear towbar hitch?

The snorkel is off a 2005 hilux (modified to fit)
5 speed man
The tow bar is a 40x40 (homemade recovery hitch)

Had a forester just like this one. Regret getting rid of it after seeing this. Looks awesome! Love the bullbar

Nice mate. Have you put the snorkel to the test yet?

Looks like a great offroader, more plans for it?

Yeah have had the foz out and about a bit testing out the lift and tyres! Its been a bit dry to test the snorkel. Do you get out much?

Thu 24th October 2013, 05:21 PM
Good to hear that you have been getting out and about :)

Yeah, we are looking for rain desperately at the moment too!! Hopefully it isn't too far away and then we can have a bit of mud to play in :twisted:

I've only had my Forester for about 3 months but we have been on a couple of trips - it's great fun :D

She's yet to take a trip to the beach but it is coming!!

That a 2005 model?

Fri 25th October 2013, 06:02 PM
Yeah I'm pretty sure this shape ran from 2003 - 2005 :)

Fri 25th October 2013, 07:50 PM
Its when the Foz was still small with a nice shape but with the EJ25 & vLSD rear :)
